YWCA Princeton Breast Cancer Resource Center is holding “100 Women, 100 Ways, 100 Days,” a challenge to women, men, and groups to each raise $100 in 100 days. Started on January 28, the program runs to May 8, culminating on Mother’s Day. The goal is to raise $10,000 to support BCRC’s free programs and services helping women live with, through, and beyond breast cancer across central New Jersey and Bucks County.
Participants can do anything they think of to raise the funds, from the simple to the extravagant, from the ordinary to the unusual. Hosting a cocktail party, brunch, or wine and cheese are great options for those who love to entertain. Kids and teens can save their allowance, walk dogs, or coordinate a school talent show or bake sale. Or simply put a collection jar next to the office coffee pot, ask 10 people for $10, or write a check yourself. Visit www.ywcaprinceton.org/100women for more information, guidelines, and registration forms, or contact BCRC at 609-497-2100, extension 303 or email@example.com.
